Careful, there's a lot of BS out there. Question everything. 
Why?

PDX, It’s because it pisses me off when I see people being played by believing what they read or listen to in social media or political talk shows as fact without any critical thinking being put into it. It’s become an epidemic and it’s hurting this country. 

WW, If it was a joke, as PB said it was poorly posted.

That's funny on so many levels.
**joke** Why? **/joke**

Dude, I knew you were being sarcastic, especially coming from you. I just wanted to vent. I find paying too much for a pen very offensive.

Ball point pens

When NASA started sending astronauts into space they quickly discovered that ball-point pens would not work in zero gravity.
 
To combat this problem, Congress approved a program and NASA scientists spent a decade and over $165 million developing a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, on almost any surface and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 300 C.

The Russians used a pencil...

Gear Talk / Re: Quickblade carbon blade vs Vector Net blade?

Iíve notice that the vector net does not have the ABS edge which the carbon version has. In my opinion adds some durability.

if i pull the trigger it will be the DC Pro carbon for sure
The Pro Carbon is only offered in the skinny models, for the Sonic 14x23 and 14x24.5, and in the Puma 14x24 only.
It's the same for the 12'6 boards.

I recently got to paddle the 2017 All Star 14x24.5. Itís a big improvement in flatwater over the 2016. I donít have data but could see that it slices through the water better. Also one of the things I didnít like about the 2016 was that it tracked to good, but they moved the fin box about 6 inches forward on the 2017 making it more maneuverable. The only thing I didnít like was the increase volume on the nose.
 
How did the stability compare between the two and any side by side pictures?

heres the inside of a carbon Sand which all star

That looks like a pretty solid construction. Is repairing a sandwich construction the same as a regular construction? Was the damage caused by an impact or defect?

this one was dropped on a rock - guy was crossing over a jetty and lost his footing and dropped the board. The repair work on this will be the same layup carbon/divinycell/carbon/gel coat - the pic shows it prepped for repair, cleaned all the loose fibers etc.  what ill do is layup carbon then add divinycell and vacuum bag that on blend the divinycell out so theres no voids and a nice smooth transition then come back with another layer of carbon and vacuum that on and same thing blend it all out nice and smooth with no high or low spots - then color match and blend.
Sounds like a solid repair.  By seeing pictures of your work it will be as good as new. Thanks for posting.

When I read that the ďresearchers examined the Facebook postingĒ my bullshit meter redlined for this study. I wonder what they would have found if the researchers would have visited a prison. Anyway, thanks for sharing Stoneaxe even though I think the study is fucked up.

Downwind and Racing / Re: SUP downwind video- when a wider board is faster
« on: December 01, 2016, 12:16:00 PM »
Hydrodynamic wise I would say no to wider is faster in downwind conditions or any condition. Iím not so sure about the lift part either. I think the biggest factor especially in the condition that the video was taken in is fatigue. You will definitely fatigue much quicker on a narrow board and that will make you much slower.
Your logo crashing into the water at the end is super cool!
